Earbox runs regular clinics from Butler Family Practice, which is located next to Butler Central Shopping Centre. We offer comprehensive paediatric and adult hearing assessments. All testing is performed by a qualified and accredited audiologist, with over 10 years' experience and using the latest audiologic technology. A report is provided after every appointment. Earbox prides itself on providing a child-friendly yet professional environment. There is ample free parking outside Butler Family Practice. Appointments are generally available between 8am-4pm (please note, before and after school appointments are popular and get booked up very quickly).About us
Appointments generally take approximately 30 mins. The audiologist will take a detailed history regarding your child’s development so far and then perform a series of tests and games which provide information regarding your child’s middle ears, inner ears and their hearing levels at different pitches. At the end of the appointment there are several possible outcomes:
Everything is fine – no further action required (annual monitoring may be recommended if hearing loss ‘risk factors’ have been identified in your child’s history)
Audiologist will recommend seeking immediate medical advice from either GP or ENT (e.g. if there is too much wax in your child’s ears or the ear drum is perforated)
Occasionally (e.g. if child becomes upset during testing) it might be necessary to test your child over 2 appointments.
Audiologist will recommend a review in 3 months’ time to monitor middle ear health
Audiologist will refer to Australian Hearing if permanent hearing loss is identified.
